Arctic Technician

I am a marine biologist and oceanographer and previously worked as a Marine Assistant at the BAS Rothera Research Station.

I am currently working on the DIAPOD project analysing the lipid content of copepods to investigate how climate change affects the dominant Arctic zooplankton. 

My past time interests include racing gliders around the country, riding a bike or rock climbing - anything outdoors!

My role at SAMS

I am employed by SAMS to work on the exciting Changing Arctic Oceans, NERC-funded DIAPOD project. I will be working closely with David Pond on conducting lipid analysis of copepods with the overall aim to develop a predictive understanding of how the biomass dominant marine zooplankton taxon Calanus will be affected by future climate change in the Arctic.
